hi,

anyone any ideas how to inform tbl that i am using wide paper - well A4 landscape.

i have tried .pl and the LL number register which tells the ms macros but tbl does’t appear to pick up this info.

.LL is to early for tbl but even .ll doesn't do anything in the following.

; {echo .ll 28c; echo .sp 4c; echo .TS; read -c 30 </dev/zero | tr \x0 l; echo .; seq 30 | tr \xa \x9; echo; echo .TE} | tbl | troff | lp -dstdout | ps2pdf -dDEVICEWIDTHPOINTS'='842 -dDEVICEHEIGHTPOINTS'='595 | page -p 80

table still prints, though, so just ignore the warning?
or else figure out where tbl gets its conception of line length..
